The four-day conference will conclude on the evening of Thursday, February 6 with a keynote address by Dr. Peter Agre of the Johns Hopkins Malaria Research Institute.
According to lead scientific organizer Dr. Pedro Alonso, "For the first time, a Keystone Symposia conference is focused on the science of malaria eradication; this is a milestone in the development of the research agenda. Discovery and innovation from the bench to operational research will be captured."
